Camera-specific Development / Re: Canon 5D Mark IV
« on: October 09, 2018, 01:02:01 PM »
Hi A1ex,

I believe I have the original firmware on my 5d4 (never updated). I am not sure if what I am reading is that we need to update our firmware to test? What do you need from us to help out? I'm fairly new to this other than a basic load ML version on my prior camera (5d mkii), so I might need a little guidance, but I'm willing to help out.

@mgm : I have the SanDisk 90MB/s card (got it a week or so back). It works great, no complaints.

Anyone notice (from May 28th build) when shooting with no magnification/crop a black bar on the right side of their raw/dng files? This may be a known issue, but I seem to recall this in very early builds only .. and thought it was fixed after (could be wrong). I was using the 2.35:1 option at 1880 horizontal. Card used is Sandisk extreme Pro (90MBs) 32gb. I do not get the bar oddly enough when I go into the crop/magnified zoom shooting for raw recording. Kind of frustrating being the shots zoomed in do not have this so switching  between shots from the two is noticeable.

Another item I found may not be known... something intriguing...I happened to try a macro lens (100mm 2.8) in a shot with magnification/crop on and placed the camera on a table where I found something rather odd. Is our video taken in an even odd pixel method (almost like interlaced)? The video shifts up and down every other frame (even and odd) when focusing on close objects (ex the table top in this case)... this was with the camera sitting on a static object. I probably would not have noticed had I not tried to shoot something so close to the lens.

I think the panning mode is a bit crude. Is anyone using it? Enough for it to take up a button?

I've used the panning mode actually, and it is pretty nice. I would not like to see this overwritten as a record alternative.

mverjerslev is correct on this reason.

The LV button is so out of the way. The Joystick is near the thumb and in certain situations a shooter can choose between h264 (SET) or raw (JOYSTICK).

For handheld run and gun shooting, the joystick is logical.

Many shooters shoot barebones, just handheld with a Vfinder.

Only downside I can think of to the joystick is the fact that it is also used for panning when in the zoomed mode for raw recording (slow pans etc). I would not use the Joystick to start and stop recording for this reason alone being one might accidentally bump it and stop recording. Just my 2 cents.

Hey folks,

I thought to open a specific topic for all discussions related to raw video on the 5dmk2.

Build 21 Mai by forum member "a.d."
Build 20 Mai by forum member "a.d."
Build 19 Mai by forum member "a.d."
Build 17 Mai by forum member "a.d."
Build 16 Mai (updated) by forum member "a.d."
Build 15 Mai by forum member "d"

Here is an easy guide on how to shoot raw with the 5dmk2 by forum member "CrewOfOne"

Here are some of my resolution tests:

SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro 600x
Magic lantern Build 16Mai 17:14

1440x840@25 =  until 4GB limit                  50,7MB/sec
1644x900@25 = 1683 frames                     56,3MB /sec
1738x840@25 = 423 frames                        57.1MB/sec
1880x720@25 = 1531 frames (regression)   57,3MB/sec
1880x768@25 = 867 frames                        58,4MB/ sec
1880x840@25 = 213 frames                    ca 58,6MB/sec


Maybe I am just missing it, but where are the newer versions of this? Thanks by the way for posting these up. I am hearing A.D. is creating newer builds but can't find them...any help appreciated.

This is my first video with the new 5D MKII: 14-bit raw Nightly Update build. Huge Thanks to all of the developers, and friendly people on here for help on how to get this working. The Compression in the video is sadly all from YouTube but if you watch in 1080P it's not quite as painful.

Without Further Delay Here It is:

My First Video Attempt with the 5D 14-Bit Raw :

1880 x 540 resolution scaled up to match 1920 width. The Bad compression is sadly all YouTube, but it does look a little better when you at least watch it at the full 1080P Resolution on there. Enjoy,

API version mismatch is corrupted file (or worse, corrupted memory in the camera). I did not experience this, on what camera are you having trouble, and what changeset? (look in help menu)

**Correction, I went back to an older version per recommendation (the 5/16/2013 version of the RAW/DNG converter does not play well with the latest build?). The info below is from this, and seems to work ok. I am thinking possibly an error with something in the newest build and the converter?

Notes from the current (on camera) info:

Just booted the 5d (MK II) back up:

ML Version: v2.3.NEXT.2013MAY14.5D2212
MERCURIAL CHANGESET : 272eee96e793+ (Unified) tip
Built On 2013-05-15 03:49:49 by d@turbo.local.

Hope that helps

Raw Video / Re: Bug report for may 16 build

Using Build May16 for 5d2.

1. actions: load module/set resolution/select start raw rec- lcd indicates ready to start recording.
   I press magnify button to aid in focus-image on lcd enlarges. I press again to go back to normal view.
   I press LV button to start raw capture. press it again to stop.
   I repeat the process but this time when I press magnify button to focus, the image in lcd is pinkish/magenta.
   This is repeatable.

2. In raw recording after I press LV to start and stop. -How do I turn off LCD live view since the LV button is always
    set to start Raw   record?
    I tried to go to ML menu- Unload Module- but still LV button is programmed to start raw record and not turn off liveview?

I got the same error when I hit the magnification button in Live View when I tried to record with the raw_mode (goes magenta) and my camera even threw an error (locked). I had to turn off, pull battery and turn back on again after. If I don't do the magnification in live-view it seems to record and work ok though.


I am using a 5D MKII. I have the most recent stable ML version installed, and installed the updated AUTOEXEC.BIN and ML folders from the nightly build. If it makes any difference (and I know this is not a top notch card anymore) I am using a Sandisk Extreme IV CF card (45MB/s) 8GB size. My battery is currently charging for the camera (drained it), but I will check the help menu as you mentioned when I can turn the camera on to let you know what it says in the changeset. The only other thing I did was add the module for the RAW_REC someone provided for the MKII.

Sorry if this has been asked before.

When trying to install the May 13, 2013 Nightly Build, I'm getting the message:
Firmware update program
Update file cannot be found. Please check the memory card and reload the battery and try again.

When I unzip the v2.3.NEXT.2013May13, there is a 1100D-105.fir, but no .fir for the 5d2 within the zip. Should I reuse another .fir for the 5d2?

I've gotten the NB (nightly build) to work twice before on both my 5d2 and T3i, and each time had a problem like this. IIRC, the firmware doesn't report a Nightly-Build, but v2.3.  It's not a confidence builder. Obviously I'm doing something wrong, like leaving out a step. Or I shouldn't use the 5D2 in "Non Magic Mode" to format the CF card prior to installing the NB?

Should the NB .zip have a 5D2-212.fir in it? I've got one dated from 2012.July.23, which I think is from the Canon firmware update.

Or should I get the 5D2-212.fir from the v2.3 "Stable Release"? Which is also dated 2012-July-23. It does seem odd that the NB .zip has a .fir for only the 1100D. Is that "as expected"? Because it wasn't in the v2.3 Stable-Release? Or there haven't been firmware updates from Canon for the 1100D?

Sorry to be slow, but it is perhaps from an excess of caution to try something that could brick my 5D2. I really, really want to explore automated dot-tune and RAW histograms.

This was not very clear to me either at first, so I hope this might help you:

1: If you do not already have it make sure you have the regular/Stable release (non-nightly) build of ML firmware for our camera installed (5d MKII). The ".FIR" file in this is the correct version you need.

2: If you choose to download the Nightly Build the "Autoexec.bin" and "ML" Folders contain the updated data. Even though they may appear the same as what you have already you can copy (and overwrite when prompted) the existing files on your Compact Flash card. Don't worry about the ".FIR" file as the one from the stable version you already have installed is correct... it is these other files (the Autoexec and ML folders) that give you the updates you need.

3: When you turn on your camera and go to ML option (Trash button on MKII) you should now see a couple new features.

That should at least help you install the new build. The DNG burst mode should be available from this alone, and if you are looking for the raw Video mode additionally (alternative to DNG burst) you will also need to download and install the correct module. There are a couple recent posts on where to get this for our camera.

I hope that helps

Yesterday, I got Error API version mismatch 29030400, but the version today works for me!

I have also the Sandisk Extreme CF 60MB/s.

I got a similar issue today when I ran the converter : API Version Mismatch: -2147483629

I am running in camera  (5d mk ii) with an odd frame size 1880 X 480 to get a very widescreen-esque look, and still be able to write to my cf card (40MB is fastest card will do if I recall correct) and was wondering if this could possibly be the cause (Frame size)? Any ideas or am I missing something possibly? Or... am I running the wrong version of the converter?
